What's Happening at GA

One of the opportunities of a companion synod relationship is forming partnerships between congregations in the Metropolitan New York Synod and the congregations in the North Western Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ.

Companion congregations creatively explore our oneness in Christ as we grow in our relationship with one another and share the Gospel. Congregations experience the joy of both giving and receiving. Friendships are formed and opportunities for experiencing another culture are offered.

We at GA have been partnered with the Kayaga Church in Tanzania led by Pastor Jonathan Ntwale. In building relationship with Kayaga, a Companion Relationship Committee will need to be formed. Lay leaders in the congregation will commit to nurturing the relationship. Please contact Deacon Camille Holman if you are interested in participating in this mission.

Daily Bible Verse

  • 2 Corinthians 9:1-15

    ​Now it is not necessary for me to write you about the ministry to the saints, for I know your eagerness, which is the subject of my boasting about you to the people of Macedonia, saying that Achaia has been ready since last year; and your zeal has stirred up most of them

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.

 

Healing Services

We offer brief healing services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. These are powerful times of anointing and prayer. They are held in the sanctuary after the 11 AM service.
